We did get the FC Gameboy Micro. Which is awesome.
They'll release it again but with different games. This is nintys marking strategy.
Well, the Ball Game & Watch had the same form factor and function as the original, and was not an emulator due to the largely mechanical nature of 1980s LCD handhelds - it would be cheaper to manufacture a hardware clone when you only have one display option. The internals may be different, but as the NES/SNES/N64 (and others) have differing internal configurations within their production runs I don't think that excludes the G&W from the "reproduction" tag.
The Nes (and Famicom) Mini on the other hand, has a different form factor, different control and A/V interfaces and is running emulated software on internal hardware that bears no resemblance to an actual NES. it could be called a tribute, but it's not a reproduction or repop. I do think it's strange and hilarious that Nintendo elected to reproduce the captive controllers on the Famicom Mini, you'd need to be really caught up in the nostalgia to consider that a selling point.
This doesn't make any sense from a capitalistic standpoint. You'd have to be really really dense to stop production of something like this. There's quite a demand, Why stop making it?
Rip Nes classic. You had long... erm, full... uh, accomplished life?
As much as I would like to have one, i can't justify payin 50 bucks for something my 3ds, Wii, Wii U, Vita and Nes already can.
Maybe more room for Super Nintendo Classic Edition this end of holiday 2017 ? If so, I am so buying PAL version. Not the ugly USA version.
Well, I've never even seen them in stores. That's not a surprise to me.
I want this and a Nintendo Switch.
Very true. The Famicom Mini looks so cool than the NES Mini.
With so many of the clone NES controllers for the Mini NES on ebay, I think it's only a matter of time before Chinese factories will just shove the 100000 in 1 NES games into a NES mini shell.
I get that Nintendo only made the Mini NES just to tide them over for the Christmas period but I think they'd rather try and increase production for the Switch instead of making both products at the same time. Besides, I think Nintendo are doing this so that we are forced to pay for the inevitable NES games on the Switch.
Ah yes, the always brilliant "you mad bro" response. Yes, I wish i had spent money on a piece of plastic that inaccurately emulates 30 roms not of my choosing unless hacked. God yes I am so mad bro. I should throw out my actual nes consoles and carts and buy one of these amazing works of art for each room in my house. Thank you for showing me the way.
I just wanted that slick controller to play VC on my Wii U.
I mean , this thing is discontinued since the month it came out. Literally it wasn't available in any videogame store , infact , it wasn't available in any kind of store and the only way to buy this was from scalpers , which obviously these guys were going to double the price of this.
This should have been announced since December 2016...
With all the demand for it i'm surprised, they could make easy money by producing more.
But this is NOA, the second they actually care is when we all should worry.
When you say it was a hardware clone does that mean the internals are the same? Trying to understand and I don't want to take apart my systems to find out.
All I see if "Nintendo of america discontinue NES classic" and then "Is it going to affect europe and japan as well? or just north america?"
GODDAMIT!!! NORTH AMERICA ISNT JUST USA, ITS ALSO CANADA AND MEXICO!!!
so, here's my question : Does Nintendo of Canada also discontinue NES Classic?
SNES on holiday Summer 2017 would be pretty rad.
Dollars to donuts that NOA will pull the same limited quantity-then-scalpers-pulling-their-BS tactics.
